Okay, this is the view of my new potager from the house. Far from finished, but I love love. The bank in between the house and the potager will eventually be full-on permaculture terraces (wanna come help? hee!)

Still More Gardens
This is one of the triangular beds, full of cabbage, onions, purple kohlrabi, eggplants. The other is our peas coming on strong, and peppergrass growing up amongst, and then radishes poking up underneath (grow great in the shade).
A hot chili almost ready for harvest (I overwintered this plant in the house) and some lovely broccoli growing nicely even though the plant is feeling the heat...
I got 2 full beds of strawberry plants free from an abandoned house that they were about to tear down, they were just planted this spring and look at the fruit already coming on! Eventually I hope we have HEAPS of strawberries and blueberries to go with our buckets of raspberries...
I have about 30 tomato plants, all started from seed. These are interplanted with cucumbers, rainbow chard and lots of basil.
